Who here is an avid Amazon shopper? I know my family gets a ton of products from here and I wanted to start a new series that shows you what we purchase and use on a monthly basis. You will find a vast array of things from clothes, kitchen and houseware, health + beauty products and more. The post will cover items for the entire family! I hope you enjoy the round-up and stay tuned for next month's post!!!
This past spring I tried something way out of my comfort zone and went really blonde. It was super fun and I liked the change, but as this due date starts creeping in I realized I wanted to go back to my natural color before he or she arrives.
I have lived in Denver since 2010 and can you believe I have yet to find a stable hair stylist? Well, not anymore. I recently discovered Elle B Salon and I am over the moon with their services.
I had the opportunity to sit down with owner Lindsay and she happens to be a mom of a 2.5-year-old. We talked a lot about work-life balance and what it was like for her to build her business with a child at home. She was truly a testament to girl power and I appreciated her candidness, vulnerability and insight.
So I wasn't sure if I was going to cover this sale or not. To be honest, there are so many other fashion/motherhood bloggers that highlight sales and daily outfits on a more consistent basis.
These bloggers have a wayyyyyyy larger and more engaged following than I do which leads me to the fun comparison game (a.k.a. thinking about how I'll never be as "good" as them so to speak).
But I have been practicing self-compassion and have to believe that I if I want to pursue something, I can do intentionally and with purpose. Who cares how many people it reaches, right? I just have to keep going.
I am still a bit behind with blogging about all of my J Crew Sale finds. Better late than never, right? This white crinkle midi skirt is an investment piece that I welcomed into my closet with open arms. I first fell in love with the lightweight material and the fact it fits over the baby bump so well. I am wearing my regular size 4 since the elastic band allows for some stretch around the midline. Oh, did I mention that this dress has pockets!?
Every week I will be going to your favorite stores for try-ons in effort to find pieces to add to my closet that make me feel comfortable and beautiful while pregnant. For me, this is quite a feat. So when I do find pieces that work with my growing bump now, and that will also work after pregnancy, I get rather excited.
Today I will be showing you how to dress up the softest bodysuit I have ever laid my hands on from J Crew. And it's currently 50% off! Only $23!!!! Say what?!?!
I hope you enjoy the post! All of these pieces are non-maternity, so even if you aren't pregnant, keep viewing. These three looks are some of my favorites!
For our babymoon, Perry and I will be extending our vacation to California after we attend my childhood best friend's wedding. I am already getting antsy about packing swimsuits and started my search for some that would work for the bump but would also be cute even if you aren't pregnant. Below are my picks!
I have been feeling so feminine while wearing polka dots. This whole outfit is from Balzac Paris, a beautiful French brand that I recently connected with. I felt so light, free and fun during this shoot and it inspired me to round up some other fun polka dot styles for you.
Yesterday on Instagram Stories, I shared three dress silhouettes that I am loving while pregnant. I am slowly building my closet full items that I can wear now while pregnant as well as afterward during the postpartum phase. I think it is so essential to be comfortable yet still feel that you're able to express your personality while pregnant. Below is a roundup categorized into the three dress silhouettes that I tried on + a few more options that I am currently loving. Happy shopping!
A few weekends ago, thanks to Alaska Airlines, I had the honor of going to San Francisco to visit my childhood best friend, mother-in-law, sister-in-law, and niece. I lucked out with the weather and spent most of my time walking. I must have walked 10+ miles a day. I was so worn out after the trip, like reallyyyyyy worn out. I spent the next two days after my trip in bed with a migraine and puking! I am so grateful that I had a few good days while there!
I have left Winter maybe twice in her 2.5 years of life, so it was definitely a strange feeling to not be with her for a few days. The first day I was gone from her I found that I was craving her in a sense. I missed holding her and hearing her talk. I was, however, able to ease into the trip a little more the second day and spent the rest of the time being more present.
Below is a little recap of where I went, what I ate and places I saw. San Francisco totally stole my heart, so if you get the opportunity to visit, I highly recommend it!
